    I'm probably not the best judge, but in my opinion, both the story and the story-telling have improved as it's gone along.

    Also just to warn you, it's very long, 18 chapters total. Much more is to come, and I hope also its subject matter won't become offensive as I get into some very serious stuff.

    Yeah, I make it kinda obscure, perhaps for wider application?

    Something like early 1900s, but undisclosed (russian) city.

    More typos...

    So, you're back to it again. Good.

    I was wondering - are you deliberately setting your story in an unknown place and time, or do you have a particular time period and location in mind? Or did I miss it?

    WHAT? NO!!!

    Shoot that's a mistake from "left-over" drafts.... must fix again.

    Yes, pardon me, I can have a LOT of typos in this stuff, and do notify me for these inconsistencies.

    Yes, the Main Character is to be known as Andrei. I switched the names because I decided to use the name Anton for a different story altogether, one I'm working on currently. This story is already finished.

    Is Anton an alternate version of Andrei? You switched between them in the middle.

    Interesting story. I remember having the same experience with the late Henryk Gorecki's symphony of sorrowful songs when hearing it on radio back in the '90's. I liked it so much, I got the cd, and my mother who I was living with at the time loved it from the first listen as well. My younger sister was a bit jaded by this work, because her teacher in primary school apparently played it ad nauseum whilst the class was meditating or something. So she was kind of bored to death of it (overexposure?).

    Anyway, I've only got Glazunov's saxophone concerto and a bit of "The Seasons" on cd. Given your enthusiasm for this guy, i'll have to give these a re-listen soon...

    Nice!

    Dvorak for me! The 9th was my introduction, plain and simple. He was the composer I read about, explored most of his works and had him in my thoughts continuosly. He began to feel like a friend, and listening to his music I felt like I was staring into his soul and had a direct connection.

    Then, I took a long break from him while I was exploring further into everything else.
    Recently I started listening to him, and today rented two biographies from the library.
    If there was enough time to do this with every composer of note my life would be complete.

    When I heard this work for the first time, it was so cold, I thought it had to do with ghosts or something. Then I found out that was Prokofiev's intention! He was depicting something like a graveyard, and the wind.

    This piece was also played at his funeral.

    Which work inspired this?
    (Thought it was brilliantly written, you sometimes add a little detail that brings the character's emotions to life)

    Music is what inspires me to write many of my stories, a particular work or works I fall in love with. This was no exception. I'll share it some time.

    Great analysis! I like it.

    The stuff about his use of keys I find particularly intriguing.
